Patrick Dempsey Talks Fatherhood

Formal McDreamy
The world of Grey's Anatomy continues to turn in peculiar ways, but Patrick Dempsey is too busy to worry about drama at Seattle Grace.

Between shooting his upcoming film, Made of Honor, and adjusting to life with newborn twins (and his 5-year-old daughter, Talula) at home, this Grey's Anatomy leading man barely has time to change a diaper!

In an interview scheduled to air this evening on Entertainment Tonight, the man we know as McDreamy talks about his hectic family life.

Excerpts from the interview...

On the twins, Darby Galen and Sullivan Patrick:
"They change. I leave in the morning and come back in the evening and they've grown. They're starting to talk and now there's some reaction there. They use their faces and hold their heads up a bit."

On raising his three children:
"The first year is really hard. Come to think of it, the first 18 years are extremely difficult."

On whether he'd let his kids get into show business:
"I think with your kids, whatever their passion is, you give your support. You give them the opportunity to try what they want to try."

On his wedding to Jillian Dempsey:

"It was fun. It was just 30 people back in Maine. We had a great time. We put it together in a week and a half or two weeks, it was really fast... The photographers got really drunk and gave us one picture from the whole experience. But we gave everyone those instamatic cameras, and those were some of the best shots."

Hi, there!..a0d974065643dc198c6586ec3e633543


I was just wondering Patrick describes himself as an Irish American .Dose anyone know where in Ireland his family is from.


I think most of the PD movie has been filmed in LA. They most have hada afew scenes in NY because I saw some pics of him there last week-end. On the ET interview the reporter commented that Patrick would be taking his family with him to London for filming of his movie, so they obviously are filming scenes there too. Don't have a clue where though. That would be neat if you could see him!


Hey Kathy did u say london? seriously? i live in london, will there be any chance they let fans see him? OMG! PD in london! LOL*


Could someone please post the interview on youtube .Thanks


Hot pic of Patrick! I saw his interview last night on ET. He was so cute! He is staying so busy! He says he has worked everyday since the twins were born. BLess his heart. He needs a vacation. (I would love to go get him for week-end get away) ha! He also mentioned that the movie would be filming in London and his wife and children would be going with him. So thats good! Actuallly, I heard him say on another interview, once he wrpas withthe movie he has (2) days off and goes back to work on GA. I think I read somewhere where they go back to work like July 9th. That is really soon! That makes me feel like we are that much closer to our NEW SHOW!!


I totally agree. He is just soooo cute and sexy at the same time! Just love him!


OHHH He is SOOO adorable
Just want to K.I.S.S him : )
LOVE patrick and HOPE he and Meredith will be a couple next season : () Merder4EVER : ) : )

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
